ARTECHNE – Technique in the Arts, 1500-1950


Call for Applications: Virtual/Material: Color/Pigment Graduate Workshop

The Department of Art History at Penn State University is seeking applications from doctoral students in art history and related disciplines for the week-long workshop, Virtual/Material: Color/Pigment. Funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, this workshop will offer an integrated curriculum of Technical and Digital Art History via the special case history of color. Through a combination of seminars, demonstrations, and hands-on labs led by a distinguished faculty of scientists and historians, participants can expect to leave the workshop better equipped to understand historical colorants and their production as well as the ways in which digital cultures can distort or ameliorate historians’ approach to such colorants.

The workshop will take place August 9 – 13, 2021.

Applications for Virtual/Material : Color/Pigment are due via email to color@psu.edu by 11:59 pm EST on Monday, December 14, 2020. Award notifications will be sent in late February.
